We were seeing lilacs and pastels last year, and dark reds have been a big trend for this year, but one trend that has been hitting runways and walkways as well this season is shiny brown hair. While you may not think of brunette locks and hot trends in the same passing thought, it may be time to think again, as we’re seeing this shiny brown trend on stars from Anna Kendrick, to Dakota Johnson, to Jenna Dewan-Tatum. What really sets this look apart from others is the shine factor, and this could take some finesse and a few chats with your stylist to get just right.
When it comes to the brown tones, we’re really seeing everything from light golden browns, to the dark and rich tones, like Dakota Johnson’s or Anna Kendrick’s, which we love so much. For those who don’t want to make the big commitment of going light to very dark, the shiny brown hair trend can be carried out successfully with a slightly lighter shade, and we recommend opting for something more in the golden brown realm if you’re looking to just test it out and see how it works for you.
Once you’ve got your shade of brown down, you’ll then want to focus on the shine factor, and this part can take some trial and error. It’s important to remember that hair with the best shine will also be hair that is healthy, so you’ll want to focus on the health side when it comes to crafting your product regimen. Another important factor to remember in your quest for ultimate shine is heat protection, as the toll your styling tools can take on your hair will directly affect the amount of shine you’re able to achieve. Whether you’re using a blow dryer, a flat iron, a curling iron, or curlers, we recommend prepping your hair with a high quality heat protectant first in order to keep on trend and keep the dull at bay.
The shiny brown hair trend can be complemented with just about any cut or style, and the options are endless when it comes to how you can embrace your own shiny brown hair. As long as you place your focus on the health and protection of your hair, as you bring out your natural shine, we feel that this is a trend that any woman can come to really love!
